In 2016, St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez stopped the car of Philando Castile, who was driving through Falcon Heights, Minnesota, in a car that had a broken light in the back of his vehicle. The agent requested the corresponding documentation from Castile, who informed him that he had a weapon in the car, and after a few seconds in which Yanez told him not to take it out and Castile replied that he was not, the police ended up shooting at the driver.
Yanez, of Latino extraction, requested medical support for Castile, a 32-year-old African American, but he died. Now the US network CBS is releasing the video of the incident recorded from the Yanez patrol. In the short you can see that Yanez approaches the driver's window of a white car, parked a few meters from the patrol and begins to speak to Castile. Meanwhile, another agent, Joseph Kauser, is slowly approaching the part of the car where the co-pilot normally travels.
In the shot it is possible to see when Yanez reviews a document and Castile is heard to mention that he brings a firearm - for which he had a permit to carry. Yanez removes the safety on his pistol holder and takes it out slowly, while telling him not to remove his and goes up in tone. Immediately afterwards, the uniformed man begins to shoot into the car.
Kauser jumps back while another person's screams are heard inside the vehicle. From the right rear door a girl is seen leaving who is immediately carried by Kauser and away from the place. Yanez was acquitted of the charges that were brought against him in a trial, sparking protests from those who viewed him as evidence of racism in the judicial system.
